On 9th April I saw what I believed to be a UFO in Comanche county, Texas, at 9.12pm local time. That evening I was walking back to my motor home after wild bore hunting in an unpulated area that I lease for hunting.
The sky was clear, the wind was calm and the sun had just set. the sky was growing darker and darker blue straight above and stars were begining to show. I had my rifle set up with a high-tech Leupold optical sight (scope) which is extremely accurate and highly specialised for great light gathering ability and performs best in low light conditions.
The scope magnifies the the target image with great sharpness and definition and magnification is adjustable from around 4.5 to 14 times that of the natural image.
Upon my return to the motor home, I was tired after the long walk and had carried quite a lot of equipment with me. So I sat on a chair for a few moments removing my eyeglasses and towelled my face, as it was very hot in Texas at present. While I rested without my glasses on I noticed three very unfocused lights to the south and moving toward me. Immeditely I put my glasses back on and saw what I believe was a UFO.
The object approached from the south- south west and past directly overhead. It made no sound whatsoever?. I estimated its altitude to be about 800 ft and its air speed approx30 mph. It seemed to "float" not fly, as it obviously had insufficient air speed to fly.
" I am a physicist and an FAA- licenced pilot" I could clearly see its underside, as it was illuminated by the fading sunlight to the west. I estimate that the machine was at least 60 ft wide, 80 ft long and 10 ft thick at the rear. Under the belly, there was a staght line going from its leading tip towards the centre of the aft edge of the fuselage. This was perpendicular to its direction of travel.
The straight edge clearly showed its shape to be three dimetional. The straight line showed that its belly was V-shaped like the hull of a boat.
This machine was directly over me and I was all alone in middle of nowhere, you can surmise how "uneasy" I felt. It made no threatening moves whatsoever, so I aimed my rifle at it to get a look at it through the riflescope. It was set at 8.5 so I could clearly see explicit detail. The machines surface appearded to be covered with well fitted tiles, much like that of the US space shuttle.
THEN in the fading light I noticed a distinct marking. This marking was absoluty shocking, as I could read what it said! It was white print outlined in black on a red arrow which pointed to a rectangle or sorts... 'somthing rectangular that I could not define. But I could clearly read the words that said " IMMERGENCY RELEASE and RESCUE " There were other words that were too fuzzy to read but looked like the words ' PULL FOR...." somthing?
Instantly I realised that this was a military machine and not a flying saucer!Realising that these suface details were intended for rescue efforts in a crash situation to remove the pilots I felt more at ease knowing it was one of our own. I have never seen a craft of this type before and feel a little uneasy as to whether I should have been aloud to see it in this detail.
